What's New


Track colors can now be changed using the menu Selection → Set Color of Selected Items... or by selecting an item and pressing one of the numeric keys 0-9. Color choices are saved as part of the document and are compatible with Garmin devices.


The Add/Remove Point tool has been renamed to Edit Point tool and it's functionality has been improved:

• Used without a modifier key, it will add a new point inside the nearest track segment
• Used with the Shift key, it will add a new point to the nearest end of the nearest track
• Used with the Option key, it will remove the nearest point
• Used with the Command key, it will move the nearest point


Support for XML namespaces has been improved. Unused namespaces will be removed from the document, and commonly used namespaces are built into Adze and can be restored for malformed documents
